is a review of the painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel,
where God is creating Eve out of Adam's rib.
Most people look at the figure, and ignore the ground. An artist like
Michelangelo is always aware of the ground. In this example, he has
created a holy Phallus delineated by the torso and arms of Eve, and the
rocks just below her arms. It is divided into two sections. The upper
section is the Sky, and the lower section is the Water. A loose strand
of her hair completes the illusion.
This virtual Phallus is pointed directly
into Eve's womb.
Perhaps Michelangelo was laughing in Pope Julius II's face. Perhaps it
is just his usual shenanigans, like his painting of Eve's temptation.
